Icon of nurgle witht he 2 flamers
Icon of Khorne with the 2 flamers.
Ok I have a new box of regular Chaos Marines, I'm going to give them 2 flamers, as for icon, i was thinking Icon of Khorne. Some people have said Nurgle though....
What do you think?
Im guessing this will be for horde control, piling out of a rhino or jumping out of bushes. I think nurgle will benefit them more, the added resilience means that the enemy unit will find it harder to retaliate while you stand outside your rhino for that one turn before you burn them again and then fist them into the floor.
My vote goes to Nurgle but for a cheaper option Undivided would be cool.
"They say the Darkness consumes you. They don't say what happens after It's done."
since you're very close when you use the flamers you are likely to be attacked in close combat or attack yourself.
since flamers excel in frying guard and orks, which have lower initiative than your marines, the khorne icon should make them more survivable in close combat due to the squad killing more opponents before they strike back.
when you don't get assaulted, however, nurgle protects your guys better against enemy shooting. but icon of nurgle is very pricey and in a 10 man squad it would make your guys almost as pricey as plaque marines. i'd just take plaque marines instead, they are even tougher than icon of nurgle guys plus they are fearless and can have 2 flamers at a lower model count. they even don't lose their benefits if one model (the icon of nurgle bearer) goes down.
all in all i'd say the icon of khorne is better because it is cheaper and plaque marines outdo nurgle-icon csm.
